I think my enormous success with this month’s “Colorful Sounds” challenge can be attributed to two things: My acute sense of hearing and my incredible luck.
I’m pretty sure the hearing thing comes from many years of exercising my eardrums at rock concerts, in the Greg Room in front of my loudspeakers, and blasting loud music through my headphones while mowing the lawn and shoveling my driveway. Heavy duty listening is to the ears as cycling and weight-lifting is to the muscles. I THINK that’s how it works.
The incredible luck comes from being a nice guy. Being nice comes naturally to me. I think it was Moses–maybe somewhere in “Leviticus”–who said, “Nice guys get all the luck.” Or was it Aristotle who said that? I can’t remember.
Whatever the reason, I clearly have the highest Listening Average in Cycle365 League history. In fact, I have recently put up so many sounds on YouTube that I might soon become what they call an “Influencer.” I can’t imagine what I’ll influence people to do, but there is no denying that some of my videos have more than 10-12 views. Can you say “VIRAL?”
Well, let’s get to some of today’s sounds. As you can see from the title, they have a transportation theme.
I’ll be back with more of my “influencing” very soon.
